  • Yup sure can, like pp said stinging nettle. I have bushes on the side of my house that attack you with huge thorns and after you pull them out you get red welts like that.

  • Yes.
    I got into the nettles one time and I had to use ice to stop the sting.

    I don't know if baking soda past would help or not.
    Like you make for a bee sting.

  • Oh yes, without a doubt. Lived in W. TX for many years and those little grass burrs could leave nasty little welts in their wake.
